What does a borage seedling look like?

I sowed some borage seeds on Monday. Since then, it has stormed a lot this week and a lot of weed seedlings have come up. One seedling had a stout stem with silvery leaves and hairs. I don't want to pull out my borage by mistake, so am wondering what a borage seedling looks like. Thanks.

Saintin, that sounds right... rounded smooth seed leaves, then another pair of hairy ones follow that. Borage is VERY easy to grow from seed, I can pretty much guarantee you'll get some eventually if you leave the bed a while.

The seedling I mentioned had hairy seedling leaves. That's not borage is it? How big are the seedling leaves when the borage cotyledons emerge? I'll try and get a picture of the seedling, once it stops raining of course!

yeah,.. I'll see if I can find any seedlings in the garden at the moment and we can compare...

Cool, thanks Jamus. I found another seedling in the beans' bed today that looked similar to the one I found in the radishes' bed. Will get a picture as soon as possible now that the rain has stopped.

I'm sure a lot of the gardeners in here are quite skilled at identifying seedlings... I recognise most things that come up in my garden from a very early stage.

Hi again saintin. I took a picture for you.
